Absolutely amazing local restaurant

I have been eating here on a regular basis since childhood. Best food, best service! Barbecue eggrolls are a must-try!

When the grandkids come to visit this is on their must visit list. The restaurant on Broadway used to be the bus stop. The restaurant is attached to an old bus. Not only do they have great food and service but the location is great. It's in the downtown area so you can stroll down Broadway where you can enjoy... More

Great food. We drove to Macon Rd to get the food and it was well worth the drive. The staff was excellent and the time awaiting for arrival was awesome. The food temperature was just right. Everyone go to Country's and get some good ol barbeque and delicious side items.

Solid BBQ with choice of mustard based or red vinegar based sauce in the table. Decent portions and great service. Their sweat tea was perfect and kept coming.

I've been eating at Country's since the early 80's. Always a must do whenever I'm in the area. Their brunswick stew has to be my favorite thing on their menu. They call it q stew, and it is made Georgia style. Not a finely ground "hash" like you tend to get in SC. Great place to take the family.

Hard to find good local food in Columbus - lots of fast food and catfish - but this place hit the mark. Had the tasty "heart healthy" pork tenderloin, with the vegetable of the day (Mac and cheese)! One of my companions had the Barbeque chicken which was a large and nicely prepared meal - it came with a little... More

Places like Sonny's, Smokin' Pig, etc. are my extended family's favorite types of places to dine as a family. Country's is definitely our place here in Columbus. There's 3 locations that I know of and have been to 2 of them. Expect "southern hospitality" even if that annoys you just a little...

The food is always good and they do have some good specials. The vegetables are homemade (mostly) and the onion dip is AWESOME.

Columbus has a pretty cool downtown scene. We were on our way back from Florida and wanted to stop for lunch. We ran across this spot where the parking lot was full and decided to pull in. This was too much of a local favorite and not a family (out of town) spot. The menu has no kids menu. We... More
